Life Is A Verb from the Author: Patti Digh. In October 2003, Patti Digh's stepfather was diagnosed with lung cancer. He died 37 days later. The timeframe made an impression on her. What emerged was a commitment to ask herself every morning: What would I be doing today if I had only 37 days left to live? The answers changed her life and led to this new kind of book. Part meditation, part how-to guide, part memoir, Life is a Verb is all heart. Within these pages—enhanced by original artwork and wide, inviting margins ready to be written in—Digh identifies six core practices to jump-start a meaningful life: Say Yes, Trust Yourself, Slow Down, Be Generous, Speak Up, and Love More. Within this framework she supplies 37 edgy, funny, and literary life stories, each followed by a “do it now” 10-minute exercise as well as a practice to try for 37 days—and perhaps the rest of your life.

Accountability A Noun Or A Verb from the Author: Richard L. Cassidy. Richard Cassidy's Accountability: A Noun or a Verb? takes the simple premise of 'we are all accountable for our behavior' and explores the significant relationship between accountability and our personal and professional successes. What does it mean to be accountable? It means taking responsibility and not considering oneself the hapless victim. (If one is stopped and ticketed for driving sixty in a forty-five mile zone, is it logical to blame the police officer?) It also means creating a vision of the life most desired and working toward achieving that vision. It's not enough to be accountable; one must also be willing to put in the time. Many years of observing individuals and organizations confirmed Cassidy's long-held belief that men and women who take responsibility for their lives and the action required to move forward are more successful and more fulfilled. But what must we do to reach that point? According to the author, an in-depth and truthful analysis of who we are-our values and beliefs-must first be undertaken. By having a clearer picture of what we believe and how we exercise those beliefs, we move one giant step closer to that ultimate state of self-satisfaction and achievement.

Mental Hygiene from the Author: Lee Thayer. If the greatest gains in human health and longevity came not from medical “science” but from sanitation and hygiene, why might this not also not be the case with our waning mental health and longevity? That is the question this notable scholar of the human condition takes on and then answers in this provocative book. In the last years of the nineteenth century, when human life was in constant jeopardy from pestilence and desperate living conditions in crowded cities, it was changes in human sanitation and improvements in personal and institutional hygiene that created the biggest jump in health and longevity known to human history. Given that human mental health and longevity has been declining for years, it seemed to this widely-known and respected author that the circumstances are similar. Would it be possible to achieve the same remarkable gains in the health and longevity of the human mind by focusing on the same kind of conditions – mental sanitation and mental hygiene? Not only does this book answer in the affirmative. It offers substantial evidence that a similar approach can be enormously effective. Where once it was human crowding that contributed to poor physical health, it is now the impact of toxic mental diets and lack of mental immunity that contributes to our increasing personal and social malaise. At a time when freedoms are expanding, we are suffering from the diseases and dysfunctions that arise from consuming so much junk food for the mind that we no longer know – or seem to care – where we are heading. The lesson from history is that we know more and more about less and less. We have increased our reach many times over with our communication technologies, from smart phones to entertainment diversions of every sort. But we have not increased our grasp one whit. We are drowning in a sea of “information” that we have little or no need for. We no longer know what our personal or our collective destination is, or ought to be. So we don’t know what course to take. Our minds have become less healthy while what we feed it has become more toxic. It is a dire situation for mankind. This is the kind of book that appears at a time when we are most in need of it.

I Think I Am A Verb from the Author: Thomas A. Sebeok. My writing career has been, at least in this one respect, idiosyncratic: it had to mark and chart, step by step, its own peculiar champaign. My earliest papers, beginning in 1942, were technical articles in this or that domain of Uralic linguistics, ethnography, and folklore, with a sprinkling of contributions to North and South American linguistics. In 1954, my name became fecklessly associated with psycholinguistics, then, successively, with explorations in my thology, religious studies, and stylistic problems. It now takes special effort for me to even revive the circumstances under which I came to publish, in 1955, a hefty tome on the supernatural, another, in 1958, on games, and yet another, in 1961, utilizing a computer for extensive sorting of literary information. By 1962, I had edged my way into animal communication studies. Two years after that, I first whiffled through what Gavin Ewart evocatively called "the tulgey wood of semiotics." In 1966, I published three books which tem porarily bluffed some of my friends into conjecturing that I was about to meta morphose into a historiographer of linguistics. The topmost layer in my scholarly stratification dates from 1976, when I started to compile what eventually became my "semiotic tetralogy," of which this volume may supposably be the last. In the language of "Jabberwocky," the word "tulgey" is said to connote variability and evasiveness. This notwithstanding, the allusion seems to me apt.
